St Tropez Instant Tan Wash Off Face and Body Lotion Light/Medium

After reading all about this on Lily Melrose I was dying to give it a try. Lily was lucky enough to attend the Mary Katrantzou show where the new St Tropez instant tan was used on the models walking the runaway.

This is actually a sample bottle which came with Cosmo magazine. My lovely sister Sarah kindly gave me this sample as she knew I was dying to give it a try.

First off, I absolutely adore the packaging. It comes in a lotion and a mousse form, the light/medium shade has a pink lid while the medium/dark shade has a purple lid.  The colour of the tan is gorgeous, very natural. I found it dried quite quickly leaving a streak free natural glow.

The tan is instant and therefore washes off in the shower but can be worn up to 24hrs. It is also waterproof, I got to test this theory over the weekend, and I can say that I did not experience streaks or smudges.

As it claims it can be used on your face I was eager to test this theory. I applied a small amount of the tan after my primer and then added my foundation over it. I found the tan applied very evenly onto my skin and looked seamless. I did not experience any breakouts...yet!

One thing I would say about this tan is the shade is quite dark for a light to medium shade. I usually go for the medium/darker shades when I purchase tan but I found this shade was definitely dark enough for my liking, having said that I may have to purchase the darker shade just to see what colour comes out!

Has anyone else tried this tan?

  2. Looks gorgeous on! Will definitely have to pick this up :) x

  3. ohh even if it said it could be used on your face I would be so hesitant to try. I know someone who had a terrible reaction to tan on her face and it ruined her skin. This came up a lovely color on your arm. Wish I knew about this sample in the mag.x
